Bristol Palin told the court today that vile leftists harassed and threatened her after the son of a Tennessee Democratic Senator broke into Sarah Palin’s email account.
Palin testified that she was frightened when a group of boys called and claimed they were at her front door.
The AP reported:
Bristol Palin said she received countless phone calls and hundreds of text messages when her cell number was posted online after her mother’s e-mail account was hacked. Only one really scared her.
Palin testified Wednesday that she was 17 and pregnant in 2008 when her mother Sarah Palin’s Yahoo! account was invaded after the former Alaska governor was picked as the Republican vice presidential candidate. Bristol Palin said she worried when a bunch of boys called, claiming they were at her front door and wanted in.
“We live in the middle of nowhere in Alaska … in the middle of the woods,” Palin said during the trial of a 22-year-old former college student accused of hacking the account. The trial continues Thursday and could last more than a week. Sarah Palin also was subpoenaed to testify but it was unclear if and when she would.
Bristol Palin said her number was included with a photo she snapped of her brother Trigg taking his first bite of solid food and e-mailed to her parents while they were away during the 2008 presidential campaign.
“I saw a screen shot on the TV,” she said.
“I think it was Fox News,” she said of the station for which her mother is a paid political analyst.
David Kernell was an economics major at the University of Tennessee when he was accused of hacking the account. He is on trial on charges of identity theft, wire fraud, intentionally accessing Palin’s e-mail account without authorization and obstructing an FBI investigation. If convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to 50 years.
